Services for PLAN SPONSORS

Employee benefit plans are subject to regulation by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). In addition, Plan audits must be performed in compliance with the guidelines set forth by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and AICPA.

Cassell Plan Audits specializes in the audits of such plans and can assist Plan Sponsors throughout all 50 states with their audit needs.  Plans consisting of more than 100 participants will typically require an audit.
